The effectiveness of tinnitus reduction across three groups of participants with mild to moderate hearing loss and bothersome tinnitus was compared. The first group were fitted with the Lyric hearing aid, the second group with amplification alone, and the third with amplification plus masker. The group fitted with Lyric had both faster and greater reduction of their tinnitus compared to the other groups. The Lyric can be recommended as a method of tinnitus reduction in appropriate patients.
